The doctors at NYU Langone’s Heart Rhythm Center have an international reputation as leaders in the diagnosis and advanced treatment of virtually every type of heart rhythm disorder, including atrial fibrillation (AFib) and atrial flutter, bradycardia, genetic heart rhythm disorders, ventricular arrhythmias, supraventricular arrhythmias, and other conditions that affect the heart’s electrical activity.
Our team includes board-certified cardiac electrophysiologists, who are doctors that treat conditions that cause the heart to beat too fast, too slow, or in an irregular pattern. They are joined by specially trained nurse practitioners and physician assistants who provide all of the care you need, from the initial consultation to treatment and, for some people, long-term cardiac device monitoring and follow up.
Our staff is available around the clock to answer your questions and respond to your needs.
For more than 30 years, we have treated people who have some of the most difficult and complex heart rhythm disorders, and who are often referred to us by other hospitals. Ours is one of the highest-volume arrhythmia centers in the country, and research shows that centers that treat the most patients have the best outcomes. Read our patient stories about treatment of heart rhythm disorders at the Heart Rhythm Center.
We are leaders in the use of catheter ablation to treat AFib. We are at the forefront of innovations in heart rhythm treatment, including the leadless pacemaker and left atrial appendage occlusion device, such as WATCHMAN™, a permanent heart implant that reduces the risk of stroke for people with nonvalvular AFib who cannot take blood-thinning medication.
We are also home to the Cardiovascular Genetics Program, which provides specialized care for people who have inherited arrhythmias such as Brugada syndrome, long QT syndrome, and inherited cardiomyopathy.
We collaborate with echocardiologists, radiologists, cardiac interventionalists, heart failure specialists, cardiovascular surgeons, and basic and clinical scientists to develop treatment plans tailored to the specific needs of each of our patients.
Our team provides ongoing care and monitoring for people with cardiac devices that regulate heartbeat, including pacemakers and defibrillators. We manage and evaluate devices that use cardiac leads to connect to the heart. If leads need to be removed, our experienced team uses the most advanced imaging technology available in our state-of-the-art hybrid operating rooms to ensure the highest level of safety during the lead extraction procedure.
The Heart Rhythm Center has an international reputation as a training center and quality care model for medical professionals and caregivers.
